FY06 Accelerator Systems Budget
Pete got extra 150k to cover past investments
BNL BC funds redistributed to FNAL and LBL ? -60k
RC hardware start delayed ? -350k
Nick got extra 50k for PhII irradition
extra 30k To build BB-Wires
Accel.Syst. Spendings
1.2M/3.6M33 thru ½ year Mar.31, 2006
  • Make sure that we achieve all milestones
  • And spend approx as planned
  • Reviews
  • Be prepared and pass numerous reviews (small and
    big one)
  • Next year planning/budget
  • Have clear understanding of what will we do next
  • New initiatives
  • Should always have a healthy pressure of new
  • Now anticipate some to be freed after
    diagnostics development and fabrication finished
    in 2007

DoE Review of LARP November 2005
  • The review committee was very pleased with the
    presentations on beam instrumentation and
    accelerator physics. In addition, they found the
    idea of participation in the development of a
    remote control room a very interesting
    possibility for enhancing interactions with CERN
    from afar via the Fermilab project LHC_at_FNAL.
  • Plans for commissioning of LHC hardware are
    already being implemented, with the first U.S.
    staff member (Peter Limon) already stationed at
    CERN. It was reported by management that U.S.
    laboratories will provide staffing for this
    effort, and, in fact, FNAL has committed seven
    persons to this task. LARP and CERN will cover
    costs of travel and additional living expenses in
    the Geneva area.
  • Finally, the committee again emphasized its
    displeasure with the lack of formality in
    dealings of LARP, and strongly recommended a more
    effective bookkeeping system for managing
    expenses and progress on all active tasks, and a
    person who would be responsible for implementing
    such a system.

Task Sheets
  • Task Sheets are written by L2s and approved by
    L2s and L1s and L0
  • Most useful documents
  • Objective, milestones, funds and personnel
    resources all can be found on one page
  • Semi-annual reports are lined up along these Task

Fixing lack of formality RLS
Other Directive Documents
Another Concern Sign-Offs

    and CERN 6-item SignOff Documentatation scheme

  • Interesting subject, development should push up
    the state of the accelerator physics and
    technology in the US
  • Of interest for LHC
  • Collaboration of gt1 Lab, Universities welcome

Common questions to answer

  • Objectives
  • Deliverables
  • Time scale/schedule
  • Resources needed
  • Addl man-power (and type eng, phys, techs)
  • Travel
  • Labor
  • MS and Equipment

Flux Jumps
An accelerator magnet would need to demonstrate
no or sufficiently small fluctuations How
small? preliminary estimates show that 1 unit
of d(b3) will result in 2 units of Q jumps if
residual dispersion controlled to better than 1
cm at I tune jumps and nonlinear effects
need to be studied (AccelPhys)

dB/B Fluctuations
LHC tolerance dB/B3e-10
  • LHC screen light and feels 20 K He flow
  • B-flux is constant at 3kHz
  • dB/B dR/R ? need
  • dR lt 1A to blow horizontal emittance
  • First attempts at CERN (2006)
  • 1e-8 noise in quad/no screen
  • 1e-7 with air flow

dB/B Plan of Action
  • Perform dB/B measurements at CERN inside
  • Dipole (cold, high current)
  • Quadrupole (same)
  • Measure vibrations of the screen and LB
  • Will take about 1 year
  • Cost
  • 2-3 more trips to CERN 6k
  • Low-noise pre-amp 5k
  • Goal conclude on dEmm/dt and need of FB
  • Consider use of Tune FB BBQ and kicker - ?

  • Presented at the LARP Coll.Mtg.
  • CERN interest is limited as they already have
    abort gap monitors (enough for start-up)
  • LDM can be a very useful tool for high luminosity
  • Under consideration for LARP

Head-on beam-beam compensation
  • If beam sizes and shapes are matched (ep)
  • for LHC N_p1.1e11, N_ip4, for 10kV electrons
    (beta0.2) one needs N_e4.4e11 or J_e1.2 A in
    L3 m long e-beam
  • approx Gaussian e-current distribution with rms
    0.3-0.5 mm
  • or donut shape?

Challenges of Head-On Compensation
  • Total current is not a challenge
  • Optimum beam profile (vs bunchlength/beta, Qx,y)
  • Compression to 0.3-0.5 mm is doable, though not
  • Keeping beam straight within 0.03-0.05 mm
  • Beam-beam centering within 0.03-0.05 mm
  • Will bending sections do harm?

1.3 LHC Collimation RD
  • L2 Leader Tom Markiewicz (SLAC)
  • FY06 budget 850 k
  • Goals
  • The LHC cleaning system must have exceptional
    efficiency to meet its design parameters,
    significantly beyond the state-of-the-art that is
    achieved in existing colliders. It is crucial for
    the success of the LHC that different paths are
    explored in order to optimize the design,
    hardware and operational procedures for the LHC
    collimation system. In view of the exceptional
    difficulty for the LHC it is essential to pursue
    parallel RD studies in- and outside of CERN. The
    phased approach for the LHC collimation system
    will allow to test various proposals and to
    implement the best solutions in an already
    defined upgrade path to nominal performance. The
    LHC Collimator RD will complement the work at
    CERN and will be performed in close
  • L3 tasks
  • Cleaning Efficiency Studies
  • Rotating Collimators RD
  • Tertiary Collimators Studies
  • Material Irradiation Studies

1.3.1 Cleaning Efficiency Studies
  • L3 Leader Angelika Drees (BNL)
  • FY06 budget 50 k
  • Goals
  • The ultimate goal of this sub program is to bench
    mark code(s), in particular SIXTRACKwColl, in a
    variety of aspects with RHIC beams.
  • We plan to install and implement at BNL
    accelerator tracking code identical with the one
    used at CERN (K2, SIXTRACK with Collimators, i.e.
    SIXTRACKwColl) and perform simulations of
    collimation efficiencies and loss maps which will
    then be compared to simulation results from
    earlier studies done at RHIC with other codes
    (Teapot, K2, ACCSIM) and with data. Various data
    sets at two energies are available.
  • During the RHIC proton run collimator setup
    procedures should be implemented into the RHIC
    control system and tested with beam under real
    operating conditions.

Cleaning Efficiency Studies Overall Plan
  • FY2006
  • debug the code
  • compare with other simulation and data, test
    setup procedures,
  • finish reports

1.3.2 Rotating Collimators
  • L3 Leader Tom Markiewicz (SLAC)
  • FY06 budget 720 k
  • Goals
  • The ultimate goal is a successful design for low
    impedance, high efficiency LHC secondary
    collimators. The design will be validated with a
    sufficient but small (1-3) number of prototypes
    and beam tests. The design specifications and
    the prototypes are the primary deliverables. The
    time scale is set by the desirability of testing
    the prototypes with LHC beam in 2008/09. Then,
    CERN will decide whether or not to proceed with
    the rotating collimator design. If a decision is
    made to proceed, this sub-project will provide an
    engineering drawing package to CERN and will
    support the effort to commission the collimators
    once they are manufactured and installed by CERN.

  • Relaxed mechanical deformation specifications
  • lt25 um INTO beam guaranteed by adjustable
    mechanical stop(s)

Proposed layout
136mm diameter x 950mm long jaws, vacuum
tank, jaw support mechanism and support base
derived from CERN Phase I
Adjustable gap-defining stop
  • Stop prevents gap closing as jaw bows inward due
    to heat
  • Jaw ends spring-loaded to the table assemby
    move outward in response to bowing
  • May use two stops to control tilt
  • Slot deep enough to avoid damage in accident
  • Stop far enough from beam to never be damaged
    is out of way at injection

1.2 LHC Commissioning
  • L2 Leader Michael Syphers (FNAL)
  • FY06 budget 1,140 k
  • Goals
  • There is an overall benefit to the U.S.
    high-energy physics program if the LHC turns on
    rapidly and successfully. Our experimental
    physics groups have invested heavily in the LHC
    project, and the science produced there thus
    represents a return on the U.S. investment. A
    healthy and strong HEP activity at LHC will
    surely be necessary to secure future
    accelerator-based HEP projects in the U.S. The
    information gained during the commissioning will
    be available in a timely manner and will have
    maximum positive effect on U.S. plans for LHC
